NBC has record sweeps...and not in a good way.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/25/bu...-to-worst.html

A couple of things of note. The top NBC shows in prime time were Biggest Loser and the Office at a 2.1. They both failed to match AMC's The Talking Dead (the show on after the Walking Dead) which got a 2.2.
The top show on NBC overall was Saturday Night Live with a 2.3. No show on NBC came within a million viewers of Downton Abbey on PBS. They finished the sweeps in fifth place behind Univision.

Seems so weird. NBC dominated like 10-15 years ago.

I hope they didn't ruin the show by having such a long hiatus. I really think that's a bad practice for a new show. By the time it comes back, a lot of people will have forgotten about it.

Forgotten about what? What was that show about anyway?

Parks and Rec is all that's left that I care about. And I'm really scared it'll be gone this year.

I'm in the same boat. I had high hopes for Community's return, but I turned off the 2nd ep halfway through.

I'm hoping that Park and Rec and Parenthood survive, simply because everything else has tanked and they have to show SOMETHING that was on the previous year. Can't have 100% new stuff.

Parenthood is almost definitely coming back, and I think P&R will as well. It's kind of in the same boat that Chuck was with NBC a few years back. It draws a small, but consistent number, and the critics love it. So when they have so many holes to fill, it makes sense to bring Parks back.

I listen to a TV podcast. They always say that NBC is in a different boat when it comes to cancelling shows. That none of their shows do good. A show like P&R or Community would get cancelled in a second on any other network.

It's interesting that in the first half of the season with The Voice and Revolution and some decent early ratings for Go On, it looked like NBC might be coming back a bit. But once those shows and SNF were gone, the network sunk like a stone. Maybe because so many of my favorite shows in the past were on NBC, and they always seemed to be a more hip network than stodgy CBS and a kind of weird ABC, I am really rooting for them to make a comeback. I probably watch as many NBC shows as I do the other networks, certainly more than CBS which is SUPPOSED to program to my demo (50+). It's a shame it's gotten this horrible.

They might be better off running a bunch of infomercials.

So you say you want a Revolution...

I still think of NBC as being the #1 network, with ABC #2, and CBS #3 and PBS #4, with no other real choices. Times certainly have changed.

Nice to know Comcast has made such a wise decision in their purchase of a broadcasting company, couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of weasels errrr business partners.

yeah, I have no idea if it even matters, but it felt so good typing that out.

Does NBC have any power over the other networks of NBC Universal where they could harvest shows like Burn Notice, Mad Men, etc to play on NBC? I guess there is some business/financial reason why they don't do this, otherwise they would have done it already.

AMC is not part of the Universal behemoth.

I don't know if they could but it really wouldn't make sense to do so. Ratings for shows like Burn Notice are even lower than what NBC has right now. If a show did move from cable to network tv the costs associated with it would go up significantly (network work commands a higher rate of pay for all involved).
